About Our Shelter:

Second Chance Wildlife Sanctuary was founded in 1996 by Joyce Smith who had been caring for animals from her home for 25 years. The sanctuary's mandate is to aid orphaned, sick or injured, and abandoned animals. Once rehabilitated, wild animals are released back into their natural habitat and domestic strays are housed with the hope of finding each one a good home.

Our Adoption Process:

All our cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped and have their first needles. There is a $150 adoption fee per cat to enable the sanctuary to continue its important work. Our adoption policies are as follows:

1) Kittens must be spayed/neutered once they reach 6 months.
2) Cats must never be declawed.
3) Cats must be indoors only unless they have access to a secure outdoor enclosure.
4) Adopters must not live above the 3rd floor of an apartment building unless the balcony is secure.
5) If there are any problems, cats must be brought back to Second Chance.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
